Awards Time!

Some exciting news to pass along! First, I received an Honorable Mention in the 2nd Quarter of the Writers of the Future Contest. I’m excited, of course, but still hoping to disqualify myself from the competition all together by pro-ing out as soon as possible!

I also was informed that my first published fantasy story, “Ink,” which originally appeared in Liquid Imagination Issue 21, has won a Write Well Award 2015, which is sponsored by the Silver Pen Writers Association. The anthology of award winners is available in both e-book and print through Amazon.

Short Story Success!

Now that the contract has been signed, I’m pleased to announce my short story, “Ink,” will be published in Issue 21 of  Liquid Imagination, which is due to be released at the end of this month. It’s my first story sale in the fantasy genre.

I am beyond thrilled right now. Not only am I being published, but I happen to have a particular soft spot in my heart for this story (though I suppose writers aren’t supposed to have favorites), which involves subtle magic and Japanese kanji tattoos. I had a lot of fun writing it .
